Was just listening to a Terry Pratchett audiobook, read by Nigel Planer. Witches Abroad.

Pratchett is well known for lacing his favorite fictional world with sudden jolts of well-phrased wisdom. I just had to transcribe this for the future:

"... He never told people they ought to be happy, and imposed a kind of happiness on them. The invisible people knew that happiness is not the natural state of mankind, and is never achieved from the outside in."
